It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas....

Finally, our tree is up, courtesy of KC and Kayla. I actually have enough Rudolph ornaments to do the whole tree, but it would not be Christmas without the home made decorations that the girls made when they were little. I have a bunch of new ones this year. I love the red round ones with all of the Rudolph characters. This one is Sam The Snowman.
Looky here! It's Kris Kringle and The Winter Warlock. I got this one well over a month ago, and when I hung it tonight, I discovered that it doesn't work.

Here is my new water globe. Of course, Bumble is afraid of this, too, and the ornament beside it.
Anything that plays music or moves scares the crap outta him.







Here's a wee little Bumble. I wish that he wasn't so washed out.




Kayla found the rest of the village pieces (accidentally) and we finally have the whole town up and running.



Looks like a fresh snowfall.

Our new diner. I LOVE this piece! It is easily my all time favourite.
Kayla and KC put the tree up for me when I was out buying groceries. How sweet is that? I gotta say, with the tree up and the stockings hung, it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

Still no clearing off of the piano. Still no displaying in neat order of Christmas cards. But hey man, there are presents under that little tree of ours! (Bucky rocks!)

Heidi - We have our stuff out too, now. Thank goodness for kids, cuz neither one one of our houses would be ready for the holidays.

I collect the rudolph stuff too. And I have stuff to sit on the shelves, but for the life of me, I can't find any to hang on the tree. grrrrrr

Biddie said...

Burfica- Leave it to me. I will find you something :)

I am all decorated out! I need to wrap presents and still some shopping and oh, I think I'll say to hell with the Christmas cards... BAH Humbug.

Jane said...

Last year my son put up the tree for me AND decorated it. It was such a nice surprise. Your collectibles are awesome :))

Biddie said...

CindyDianne - I am all wrapped out! I have a few more things to wrap and I just don't have it in me...Sigh...I got SOME cards out, but ran out of money and stamps, so..that is that.

Jane - Thanks :) I LOVE my Rudolph stuff. I have only been collecting my village pieces for about 4 or 5 years, and the Rudolph ones I have been collecting for about two years. I am such a big kid, I love all of that stuff..Good memories from my childhood. Christmas was beyond magical when I was little.
I love it when the kids do stuff like putting up the tree. My Kayla usually does my village for me, too. She rocks.

The Kris Kringle and Warlock ornament is sweet. I haven't seen that one in the stores or I probably would have bought it.

It's looking a lot like Christmas at your place......I think its so cool that you have your family's older ornaments - - mine got lost through the years and I feel bad about it - thanks for sharing sweet Christmas stuff.

I'm missing having a tree up this year. But still don't have the bedroom funiture or the new dining room table out of the living room yet. And the formal living/dining room has been a professional grade gym since we moved it. The breakfast nook is occupied by huge birdcages. So pressies are scattered through out the house.
